I have always enjoyed making things for my home. I have made quilts, designed cloth dolls and pillows, embroidered accessories, decoupaged furniture, sewn curtains. Color is in itself a medium in my humble opinion. The hues and gradations make up what pleases us, brings the sunshine inside.
I sift through junk shops to unearth treasures, even though many people would not see the beauty in some old kitchen drawer or suitcase. You can easily make an eye-catching, vintage display for found objects and beloved photographs.
Perhaps because I don’t have a richly embroidered family history, these things are especially valuable to me. And I am recycling! Can’t beat that.
